Acceptance Is Being Spiritually Awake - Articles Surfing
Acceptance of the people, places, events and experiences of your life allows those people, places, events, and experiences to serve you. You are not limiting their potential by labeling them. You are allowing the full power they possess to come through to you and reveal how they truly fit into your creations.
As you judge others, you are really judging those aspects of yourself that you see reflected in others. So what you are really doing is judging yourself. Usually judging yourself harshly and unaware of it, because judging is an act of living unconsciously. One might say you are sleepwalking.
This constant judging of others, which in actuality is a constant judging of yourself, keeps you in a constant state of turmoil. It is hard to be at peace when you are judging yourself and finding yourself inadequate.
As you judge yourself you put labels on yourself and those labels serve to limit you and set conditions on your behavior. This causes expectations for yourself that cannot be met and then you judge yourself for that. Stress, turmoil, confusion and drama are the results of your judgmental creations. Sounds like a lot of fear going on here. But that's okay if it is your choice to continue to judge and condemn.
Consider for a minute if you were to choose acceptance instead of judging. Acceptance means that instead of judging people, places, events and experiences and limiting them by labeling them, you accept all people, places, events, and experiences and see them without limits.
The first order of business is to accept yourself without judgment. Accept who and what you are without labels and limitations. Think of the you that you could be if you didn't restrict yourself into thinking you are less than you actually are.
You have always known that you have more potential than you have revealed to the world. By accepting yourself, you release that potential to the world and the world is better for it. So are you.
Aren't you tired of living in your shadow? See the light of awareness by accepting yourself and allowing the love-based love of acceptance to rule your life rather than a fear-based love of judgment.
Acceptance allows you to live effortlessly in the paradigm of oneness. You understand that it is silly to judge things because you are the cause of all things. You have created and co-created everything that has ever shown up in your life. When you judge what shows up, you are condemning your own creations.
When you accept what shows up, you are showing gratitude for what you have created. You acknowledge that it is your creation and then observe your creation to see if it serves you. If it does not serve you, you bless your creation and choose again.
It makes no sense to condemn that which you have brought forth. Enjoy your manifestations. Look deeply into them and see the messages the universe has sent you. You will become aware that there is always so much more than you expected, usually in a different form than you expected.
When you are not attached to your expectations you are more accepting of what shows up. The more you are attached to your expectations the more you judge what shows up as compared to what you were expecting.
Remember, neither judge nor condemn. Judging is a fear-based paradigm and acceptance is a love-based paradigm. At your core is love. You make the choice.
